User error prevented me from getting the start of the first song. The first couple tracks are rather boomy, this was a problem at the board, and I couldn't settle on a satisfactory way to reduce it.
The venue for this concert was the MIT East Campus Courtyard, an outdoor area with large stone buildings on the left and right side. The occasion was Boston's "Mission of Burma Day" per city council proclamation.
This was an excellent set IMHO. Since it was a free all-ages event, the crowd had a lot more young fans than you would normally see at a Burma show (they do tend to skew older ... this coming from someone who is 31). It's a little strange seeing people who MIGHT be 16 wearing Minor Threat patches on their hoodies, but they were having a good time.
The first few tracks were first released on The Obliterati. Then the band played the entirety of their new album, "The Sound The Speed The Light," backwards. Then they played tracks from their early radio tapes that received heavy airplay on WMBR (MIT's student radio station).
*Note, "1, 2, 3, Partyy!" does have two "y" characters in it.
Wow, a free MoB show 30 yards from where I lived 30 years ago (Senior House, across the street). I'm not surprized about the age range; there probably were some old farts with whom I thrashed at the Rat when MoB first played.
